The new exhibit at Gallerie Chiz is titled Politics, Prisons, The Printed Page. This exhibit features works by Joan Goswell and Tim Menees. This pre-election exhibit runs from September 3 through September 25, 2004. Come and experience this highly-charged exhibit. Joan Iversen Goswell is an award-winning book artist and Tim Menees is a well-known cartoonist for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Joan Iversen Goswell has created for this exhibition a number of extremely thought-provoking, sometimes humorous, sometimes poignant, sometimes frightening books dealing with the state of our country at various times. With book titles such as A Fourth George Book, Saving Daddy's War, The Tongue of War, and A Manual of Compassionate Conservatism, she touches upon the presidency, politics, war and other issues. Her work can be found in many prestigious collections, such as The Superior Court of Pennsylvania and The Sackner Archive of Concrete and Visual Poetry.
Tim Menees will be exhibiting cartoons dealing with local and national politics. His drawings have appeared in The New York Times, Washington Post, Time, Newsweek, and on network television. Two of his one-act plays were chosen for Pittsburgh's New Works Festival. His drawings of prisoners reflect his volunteer work as a teacher of creative writing at the State Correctional Institution in Pittsburgh (Western Penn). He has done a few Sunday Magazine pieces, most recently a two-part article on the arts in prison. In addition, he plays keyboard and accordion in local blues / zydeco band Mon Gumbo.
